Join WLNC 2015 in Chicago

Posted on August 29, 2014

newsletter_wlnc_2015We cordially invite you to join us for WLNC 2015 for the first time in the United States. We chose the exciting Chicago summer – June 8-10 – to host this event. WLNC 2015 features an amazing new structure and schedule: WLNC 2015 runs from Monday through Wednesday, from 8:00 to 18:45. Mornings and afternoons each day are dedicated to live cases from medical centers from around the world. These will be followed by didactic break out sessions in the WLNC learning labs. These break out sessions are simultaneous and require pre registration. Throughout the three days, hands-on experience is available with neurovascular flow models at the WLNC Learning Labs. WLNC is the neurointerventional live conference with the largest number of cases (38 live cases were transmitted over three days in WLNC 2014).

The live case experience is enhanced by a knowledgeable and insightful panel of experts commentary during the transmission. The exposure to opinions from neuroendovascular leaders about new devices, techniques, and concepts is unique to WLNC format. During WLNC 2015 we will introduce the STROKE ON CALL experience. Five of the best stroke centers in the world will be connected to WLNC for a live broadcast of their stroke workflow including admission, assessment, decision-making and management. During STROKE ON CALL broadcast the audience will be able to interact with the stroke center transmitting. During WLNC 2015 we will also introduce live transmission from our research lab. During this session the latest concepts will be demonstrated for the first time ever. This section will allow a discussion on new concepts and critical analysis of their role in the future of our field.

WLNC 2015 will focus on the education of all the health care providers involved in neuroendovascular care. For the first time ever a neuroendovascular live course will provide educational credits to physicians (CME), nurses (CEU) and radiology technologists (ASRT). Sessions dedicated to nurses and x-ray technicians will keep you up-to-date on the latest developments that impact your practice and career.

The WLNC App has set a new industry-wide standard for electronic interactivity and education, and WLNC 2015 will again be paperless – bring your smart device (tablet and/or phone)! You will be able to download the WLNC App one month before the meeting in order to customize your schedule and add it to your own calendar. Other new features include enhanced polling options, slide downloading, and WLNC TV. Bring your colleagues, and your fellows can attend for free! Take advantage of discounted registrations for NeuroTeams, nurses and technologists. Bring your family. Chicago offers hundreds of popular attractions from arts and culture to history, heritage, and museums, plus over a thousand dining options. We look forward to seeing you June 8-10, 2015.
